While September 30th marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, it is important to recognize that this day has long been known as “Orange Shirt Day”, an Indigenous-led grassroots movement to bring awareness of residential schools as an intergenerational human rights violation, by sharing the actual experience of survivors as children and giving voice to those who did not make it home.

The Indigenous Caucus of the Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee for the Trans Mountain Expansion and Existing Pipeline (IAMC-TMX) invites all Canadians to stand with Indigenous Peoples by amplifying the dialogue in their families, communities and workplaces. Acknowledging, listening and sitting with these uncomfortable truths is the first step to re- telling our shared story. The process of reconciliation begins with each of us.

As a federal initiative, the government is responding to the Truth and Reconciliation’s 80th Call to Action. In doing so, the federal government is called upon, in collaboration with Aboriginal peoples, to establish, as a statutory holiday, a National Day for Truth and Reconciliation to honour Survivors, their families, and communities, and ensure that public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process.

Start by taking time to read the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Reports and familiarize yourself with the 94 Calls to Action.
